Emmett gets new colors
12x24 acrylic on canvas
I printed a larger and lighter version of the photo I'm using as a reference and now I'm seeing new color possibilities. Yeah!
It's strange how little changes in my reference can change the way I make a painting. You can see the photo to the left of the painting on my easel. I think it's slightly over exposed in that print but it's giving me more details in the shadow areas. Enabling me to bring more life to Emmett's body.
I'm planning to do a long bike ride tomorrow so I'm not sure if there will be a posting or not. Stop back and see.
